Transforming OSHA material to make it engaging for Purdue students studying construction management is a daunting task. But, according to Purdue Libraries Associate Professor Clarence Maybee and Assistant Professor Michael Flierl, through IMPACT—Purdue University‘s “Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation” program formally established in 2011—Libraries faculty and staff have helped other Purdue faculty members do just that: make what may seem like tedious (but nevertheless integral) content motivating for college students.
One example is Flierl’s work with James Jenkins (associate professor of construction management in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute) to redesign a construction management course. Through the course, students are able to earn important career-advancing certification from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); however, federal law requires faculty teaching such courses to base their pedagogy on specific OSHA materials.

Celebrating the History of the Purdue Libraries
David Hovde, Professor Emeritus, Purdue University, presented a fascinating history of Purdue Libraries at the “Celebrating the History of Purdue Libraries” event (Nov. 8) in the HSSE Library.
“A Look Back” is an installation in the HSSE Library that celebrates the history of Purdue Libraries. It was designed by Judy Nixon, professor, Purdue Libraries; Nanette Andersson, director, Purdue Libraries Facilities; and Pat Whalen, library assistant; as well as members of the “A Look Back” working group/committee. The installation/display will run (on the first floor of the HSSE Library) through the end of Purdue’s Sesquicentennial (Purdue University Homecoming 2019).
